Top 50 Best Quotes About Teaching - TeachThought

Top 50 Best Quotes About Teaching - TeachThought | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
Teaching is both an art and science.

Teaching is conceptual and intellectual, abstract and concrete, creative and sequential. It’s about people but framed through ideas. It’s about content, hearts, minds, the past, the future–whatever we can imagine, teaching and learning are both causes and effects.

With that in mind, we’ve collected some of the more famous quotes about teaching, doing our best to include a wide range of perspectives, cultures, nationalities, races, spiritualities–many of the things that make ‘us’ different, we tried to somehow use to curate the quotes. In that way, some will be familiar, some way will be about formal education, some will be sourced from old proverbs, etc.

The premise is simple enough and the format explains itself, so see below for our newest collection of quotes–50 of the best quotes about teaching.
